Belfast Met recently opened their £18million ‘e3’ facility. Funded by the Department for Employment and Learning (DEL) and the International Fund for Ireland (IFI) the multi-million pound facility will enhance the employability skills of its students, stimulate enterprise through business incubation and deliver innovative development programmes.
Designed to accommodate up to 500 users daily ‘e3’ houses specialist zones dedicated to digital media, manufacturing technology, catering, SME training and renewable technologies.
Working with a local distributor and the University, Gresham supplied all loose furniture for each of the learning zones, from desking through to task seating and breakout space. It was a combination of Gresham’s ability to provide a unique solution suitable for a vocational college environment, short lead times and flexible delivery solution which appealed to Belfast Met.
